Stefanie Clegg



Proud to say I now have a Daughter-in-law.

My son got married today at Kirby Hall in Corby which is a wonderful setting, an old building with beautiful grounds and luckily the weather was perfect.  A very enjoyable day all round and a reception which allowed me to spend some time with my family and even the ex-wife, well you can’t have everything.

I did drink a little in excess but as my hotel was just across the road it wasn’t a problem, I even managed to enter the door code successfully.

I wish my son and my new daughter-in-law all the best.

Welcome to the family Stef
